Guy East and Nigel Sinclair launch action-comedy at AFM
Guy East and Nigel Sinclair’s Exclusive Media Group has come aboard to produce and fully finance Miley Cyrus action-comedy “So Undercover.”Tom Vaughan (“What Happens in Vegas”) will direct from a script by Allan Loeb and Steven Pearl. Loeb and Pearl are producing through their company Scarlett Fire Entertainment. Tish Cyrus also is a producer. Exec producers are Rob Cowan, and Jodie Zuckerman-Weiner for Cyrus’ production banner Hope Town Entertainment. Exclusive Films Intl. will rep foreign rights, and is launching the film at the American Film Market. CAA, which packaged and raised financing for the project, is handling domestic rights. A studio deal is reportedly in the offing. In the pic, Cyrus plays a private investigator hired by the FBI to go undercover in the one place it can’t infiltrate — a college sorority. “There will be a touch of real danger too when she goes undercover. We have a sharp, funny, accessible and commercial script from Allan and Steven that is a perfect match for her comic talents. We are also thrilled to have Tom Vaughan at the helm,” Sinclair said.
